Nutella Fudge

My brother was telling me the other day that when he’s consistent about working out, it’s so much easier for him to say no to dessert. I was just sitting there thinking that I’m always telling myself the EXACT opposite thing.

Oh, I just burned 200 calories running around my house? Then it’s almost like this little bite of Nutella Fudge NEVER EVEN HAPPENED. It’s the power of cancellation my friends. See, math is fun!

You know what else is fun? Galentine’s Day. I’ll spell it out for you: it’s the day before Valentines’ Day and before we get all smoochy kissy with our dudes, it’s time to remember: Ovaries before brovaries. Uteruses before duderuses. If you haven’t caught on yet I’m guessing you’re a guy.

I’m getting together with a bunch of other blogger gals to celebrate our gal-ness. I’m bringing this Nutella Fudge with Raspberries to the party. Any kind of fudge always reminds me of Nikki, my older sister. She can eat an entire pan of fudge in 1 day. Okay, so maybe this hasn’t been certified, but I wouldn’t put it past her.

Nikki is not only my fudge-eating idol, she’s one of my favorite moms that I look up to. Nikki had 5 kids in 8 years, so she knows what’s up. She like a marathon mom. She has the most creative disciplinary tactics of anyone I’ve ever met. When her kids misbehave, they lose their dessert after dinner that night. If they misbehave again, the next step in the line of punishment is that Nikki will serve their portion of dessert, then sit in front of them and eat it while they watch. Pure torture.

She’s also one of the most patient people I know. (Her children are all not-strangled, so this is proof of that.) Like I said, she’s patient enough to work her way through an entire pan of fudge even. I sent her this Nutella Fudge with Raspberries for her birthday a while back and she said, I really love it, and this coming from someone who thought regular fudge could not be improved upon.

How to make Nutella Fudge

You start by spreading your fresh raspberries in a foil-lined pan and spraying with nonstick spray.

This rich fudge is made with Nutella instead of chocolate. Fresh raspberries are pressed in before it cools to balance the sweetness. Get ready for a Nutella Coma, or as I like to call it, Nutelloma. It's totally a thing.


  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1/2 cup whole milk , or half and half
  • 1 & 1/2 cups brown sugar, light or dark
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 2 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries, divided


  • Line an 8x8 in pan with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray. Spread 1 cup raspberries over the bottom of the pan.
  • Measure out 1 cup of Nutella so that it's ready. In a mixing bowl or stand mixer, measure out 2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar and set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, add butter and melt over medium heat.
  • Add milk and brown sugar and stir to combine.
  • Bring to a hard rolling boil over medium heat. Once it has reached a full boil, set a timer for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • When the timer goes off, add the vanilla and Nutella. Stir until combined.
  • Working quickly, pour the mixture over the powdered sugar that you put in the bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. The fudge should be quite thick at this point. If it's not, add powdered sugar a little at a time, up to 1/2 cup. I didn't add any extra.
  • Pour or scoop the fudge into the prepared pan, on top of the raspberries. Spread quickly, then use your palms to press in the remaining raspberries.
  • At this point I used a paper towel to absorb some oil that had pooled on top.
  • Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until set.
  • Lift foil from pan and use a sharp knife to cut into pieces.


This fudge is solid at room temperature, but the liquid from the raspberries will make it quite soft if left on the counter. If you are going for presentation I would refrigerate it. I like it left on the counter, but it will only last 1-2 days without refrigerating

  1. Add raspberries to anything and I’m all over it! Plus just think of all the fiber and nutrients you’ve just added!

  2. Wait, working out means NO dessert cravings?? What kind of universe is that? That’s the biggest reason I run — so I can eat 4 cookies instead of 1! Or 10 pieces of fudge instead of 2. I’m obsessed with Nutella… :) Pinned!

  3. I am totally on board with this Galentine’s Day. Any reason to eat insanely good food is a good reason! This fudge looks SO totally amazing.

  4. You are a genius. I never thought to put fresh fruit in fudge?! And I did see somewhere on the internet that baking can burn lots of calories – so it must be true, right?! Pinned :)

  5. I think I need to make a doctors appointment to have my Nutelloma removed…

    You always crack me up, Karen!! Happy Galentine’s Day!

  6. What yummy fudge! I need to shake mine up and add Nutella—sounds scrumptious! And your sister sounds like a very wise woman :)

  7. Nutella is the perfect ingredient for Galentine’s Day! I’m just like your sister – I bet I could eat this whole pan of fudge in one sitting too ;)

  8. Anyone who’s kids are not “all strangled” is definitely winning at parenthood, lol. This is a great tribute to your sister, Karen. Five kids in eight years?! How is Nikki still standing? Her punishment game is spot on – we could all learn from her. She definitely deserves a pan of this fudge all to herself. Happy Galentine’s Day, my friend!

  9. Oh my gosh, as if that luscious fudge wasn’t tempting enough on its own, you went and studded it with beautiful red raspberries… heavenly!

  10. Now fudge with fruit is something I could get behind. Hmmm…I think there may be a double entendre there.

    1. Thanks Lindsay! Happy G-day to you too! Or is that not the kind of word you abbreviate? Maybe I’ll stick with Galentine’s Day :) Thanks for stopping by!
